Psalm 147:1-11

Psalm 147:1-11
English Standard Version (ESV)

 All is not as it should be.  There is drastic inequality, there is pain and mourning and suffering.  Hundreds die trying to leave their own countries to find a place of peace.  Diseases steal lives, young and old, too soon.  Conditions torture the minds of the healthy, and people seek their own power, rather than trying to enrich the lives of others.
  All is not as it should be, but God is using his abundant power to set things right.  The Kingdom is drawing near, and God is at work in the hearts and minds of all to restore things to how they should be, so that the peace and prosperity that was abundant in the beginning shall once more be the case.  God is binding up the broken, and God is restoring the despondent.  You will not be forgotten, and you will not be lost, because God loves you.
  May you be guided by hope today
